Ask me anything
What’s more disturbing in this HOW TO LOAD A REVOLVER TUTORIAL? The pudgy hand that resembles a fat lady wrapping her legs around the Saturday Night Special? The hand towel at the ready for cleanup? USA Today piling up in the “read later” basket? Or the cat’s horrified look on mom’s needlepoint ottoman?
The soaring stock market is a fantasy world unconnected to the real economy. The U.S. dollar should be split into 2 types: the Real Dollar and the Wall Street Dollar. The Real Dollar would buy anything you could afford. The Wall Street Dollar, the kind generated by hedge funds, derivatives, oil speculation, short sales—basically any hi-tech gambling scam, would be legal tender only for purchases over $50,000—for luxury items, vacations etc.—but would be worthless toward food, medical expenses, gas, taxes, etc.—all real world expenses. You’d have to get a real day job to pay for those real world expenses.

The thing that always gets me about this family photo is the boy with leg-braces—pushed to the side by the curious crowd. By then the polio vaccine was universally available, but sadly too late for him.
My Op-Art piece in The New York Times. Schwarzenegger was then the Governator of California and the corresponding bar on the chart confused a few people. The space in the middle was meant to represent the gap in Arnold’s teeth, but could also symbolize a somewhat moderate political position I suppose.
I created and directed this ten-second ID which premiered during the MTV Music Video awards. Proud to be part of the pantheon of amazing MTV station ID’s.
MY ILLUSTRATION IN THE NY TIMES
Tired of raking neighbors’ leaves from my treeless yard every year, I invited a circus to pitch their big top over my property. Cleaning up from the elephants proved to be even more work. My illustration appeared with my article in The New York Times.
Despite all your finery, fancy airs and highfalutin ways, in the end, you’re full of shit.

My pharma TV spot was banned by DDMAC as being “too entertaining.” Grandpa Al Lewis came to the recording studio by himself to do the AVO. Surprisingly tall and totally with it. More info to follow.
After shaving the heads of a hundred baby dolls I shot this with a wind-up 16mm Bolex. I’ve got more experimental films gathering dust in my closet. I’ll share them as I get them digitized. Steve Newman @ http://twitter.com/OffColourFilms
